Welcome to a hidden treasure nestled amidst coconut groves, powder white sands and tropical breezes on the uninhabited island of Pulau Tengah, Malaysia in the South China Sea.
This simple resort is built from a variety of hard woods in the style of a Malay “kampung” or village. The resort’s buildings were constructed by local carpenters using traditional techniques in the Malay vernacular style.
Batu Batu consists of 20 one-bedroom and 2 two-bedroom villas set into the island’s wild and natural environment.
The open-sided pavilion restaurant and bar has 270-degree views across the sea and serves delicious European and Asian dishes.
You can enjoy the island’s eight white sandy beaches, snorkel or dive amongst its colourful coral reefs and kayak or go on an adventure through the island’s dense forest. There are SPA and Yoga treatments available.
Batu Batu is committed to the preservation, proliferation and protection of the flora and fauna in and around Tengah Island.
Families with (small) kids are more than welcome in the resort.
The island is accessible by Batu Batu’s private speedboat from the coastal town of Mersing, Johor, Malaysia approximately 130km by road from Singapore. This car journey should take between 2.5 to 3.5 hours.
The journey time by speedboat from Mersing to Pulau Tengah is 20 minutes in good weather.
The resort can provide transfer services from both Singapore and Kuala Lumpur, which is a 4-5 hours drive of Mersing.
The resort is open all year round and welcome guests right through the rainy season. However, there is a higher chance of rainy days and/or rough seas from December through to February and a chance that our boats will be subject to delays (and perhaps even cancellations) due to bad weather.
